In addition to this “Strawberries in a Row” dishcloth, Barbara also designed #48 – Windows Crochet Dishcloth. She has been crocheting for over 50 years and this is the first time she has designed anything. Barbara you did a great job on both of these designs. We are honored to have your first designs included as part of our Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge. – Maggie
